And You Thought That I Was Overreacting

No sooner do I post a follow up to my earlier warning about the potential for self-interested abuse of the International Criminal Court by anti-western groups (many of whom, of course, are based in the West) than this article falls into my lap. The court is barely a day old and there have already been calls to put Israeli leaders on trial by an Israeli-Arab legislator and by the Spanish judge from the Pinochet fiasco, who is accusing Israel of "crimes against humanity." Mark this: before the year is out, someone will be calling for President Bush and Henry Kissinger to be put on trial. You heard it here first.
